  • Thank you so much for signing up for the Easy English Video Course.

  • Now, for you to learn english

  • you need to know

  • all different kinds of things

  • about english.

  • You need to know some vocab, vocabulary,

  • you need to know some grammar,

  • you need to know about

  • American culture

  • and customs.

  • See those are very helpful

  • for you to you

  • understand

  • how to learn the language.

  • You also need some idioms,

  • some slang,

  • uh, maybe a little street talk.

  • We're gonna give you all of that,

  • okay.

  • So, this first week

  • I'm going to

  • teach you some vocabulary,

  • some grammar,

  • some american culture,

  • uh, we're gonna do a few stories,

  • we're going to read some pop culture,

  • just some

  • kinda, smutty english about some stars.

  • We're gonna have a few guest speakers

  • so, we're going to have

  • a lot of fun.

  • If you have any questions

  • let me know in the comments below

  • and I'll try to answer all of those. Okay?

  • So, today's lesson is about

  • American

  • Values.

  • Do you know what values are?

  • What is a value?

  • Well, a value is something that

  • a person

  • tries to represent

  • in their culture.

  • It's sort of, the way that they think.

  • So,

  • here are a few american

  • values

  • that you should know,

  • number one:

  • individuality,

  • individuality.

  • What does that mean?

  • Well, Americans

  • are very

  • individual type people.

  • They like to spend some time

  • alone,

  • they like to do things

  • without

  • needing

  • other people's help.

  • They don't like to depend

  • on other people, like

  • their friends

  • or their family.

  • Now, I don't always like that

  • because

  • I would like to spend more time with my friends and family

  • and even to, sort of

  • count on them more.

  • But, it's not the way that we do it.

  • Americans

  • are very individual type of people.

  • The really seek opportunities where

  • if they're successful

  • they did it by themselves.

  • Number two,

  • number two:

  • american values.

  • Another American value

  • is privacy.

  • Americans

  • like to be very private.

  • So, that means that

  • they may, ah

  • go out alone,

  • not in a big group.

  • They made

  • like to do things alone.

  • So,

  • they like to spend time alone.

  • They also consider

  • uh, their home

  • or their house

  • kind of a private place.

  • So, whereas

  • in other places,

  • maybe Mexico

  • or in Europe,

  • you may drop by

  • someone's house.

  • You may

  • stop in at their house

  • when they're not

  • expecting you.

  • Well, in America

  • we don't really do that.

  • We're more

  • private. K.

  • Number two,

  • is privacy.

  • Number three

  • is

  • we really respect time,

  • we've got a value around

  • time.

  • So, this means that

  • Americans say

  • "time is money".

  • Okay.

  • That means that

  • uh,

  • when you say time is money

  • you mean that

  • you don't want to waste

  • time.

  • You want to make very efficient

  • use

  • of time. Okay. So,

  • Americans also like to be

  • punctual.

  • Or, "on time".

  • So if I say I will meet a friend

  • at 3pm

  • for lunch,

  • if I'm late

  • I will apologize.

  • I say,

  • "I'm sorry

  • I'm late for lunch".

  • I apologize if I'm late,

  • because

  • I respect time

  • and my friends respect time

  • and if I'm

  • late or not on time,

  • then I apologize.

  • Number four:

  • the fourth

  • American value

  • I'll talk about

  • today

  • is equality.

  • Equality.

  • Now this is very different

  • and many other places

  • in the world.

  • Because we

  • really consider everyone to be equal

  • so men,

  • women,

  • people of different races,

  • white, black

  • uh, different colored people,

  • different age of people.

  • So, young

  • middle-age and old

  • are all considered

  • equal.

  • Now, part of this came from

  • thousands of years ago

  • in the Roman

  • tradition of,

  • of really looking at values

  • and one Ancient Roman tradition was,

  • people are equal.

  • And that

  • tradition came over to America

  • and our

  • founding fathers

  • put this into the original

  • founding documents

  • of this culture.

  • So, Americans consider

  • everyone to be

  • equal.

  • And, that is of value that I really like.

  • Other cultures are different

  • and that's ok.

  • But, here

  • we consider everyone to be equal.

  • Alright. So, that's today's lesson

  • about American Culture.

  • I will say that
